POST-QUANTUM CRYPTO ASIC CHIPS FOR THE IOT

A session at IoT Slam® 2016 Second International Internet of Things Conference (Virtual Event)

  • PIERRE GAUTHIER

TWD Industries AG (TWD) has mathematically-demonstrated its “post-quantum” security in 2007. The EPFL’s Microelectronic Systems Laboratory works with TWD to design and validate “post-quantum” ASIC microchips leveraging Swiss academic and private IP rights through licensing. Today’s encryption standards like AES will soon publicly expose design limits because of the multilateral availability of “quantum computers”. Post-quantum encryption makes it possible to keep contents secure despite attacks relying on unlimited computing power. For reasons such as security and deployment costs, software implementations are not suitable as they can easily be subverted and are executed on expensive generic hardware.

ASIC chips offer the best performance, energy consumption, execution isolation (protection against modifications), manufacturing and deployment costs. Today’s critical infrastructure (communications, energy, transportation, finance, government) and tomorrow’s “Internet of Things” (IoT) markets requirements to restore the trust in a “post-Snowden” world. This project is innovating by delivering mass-market mobile and wired communications entirely secured by trusted “post-quantum” security.

Speaker

Pierre Gauthier
CEO TWD Industries AG

Pierre Gauthier started his career in 1992 at Software Publishing Corporation (Nasdaq: SPCO), one of the Silicon Valley pioneers founded in 1980 by three former Hewlett-Packard employees (at this time Microsoft had $7.5m in revenues and 40 employees).

Beyond occupying several prominent consulting positions, he worked at FMN Group as R&D Director and Thomson-CSF (later renamed “THALES”) before founding TWD Industries in 1998 which he still leads today near Zurich, Switzerland.
